That could be any of the above. But what do you use regularly?

Whatever is on sale... Generally a name brand Synthetic. Although I have a few quarts of $1 GTX high mileage that I bought at Dollar General on clearance. None of my cars have any specific oil requirements other than API SN. Even thought the '01 Civic and CR-V spec 5w-20, I've ran 5w-30 with no ill effects so I can use the same weight for everything.

I'm thinking of narrowing it down to one brand. It seems I use Pennzoil more than anything judging by the old jugs with used oil in my shed. I got hooked on it when PUP was $10 for a 5 quart jug at Walmart before the GTL rollout. If I stay with one brand, I feel a bit better about combining leftover oil into one jug for an extra oil change.

I use everything on sale/discounted/discontinued/rebate in dino or syn, 5W20 or 5W30.(5W30 is my go to oil). Now & again if I need something for a particular car like my OPE or my Firebird FORMULA in my sig, I'll buy that. But, even the Firebird I use 5W30 HM.

And yes, I do alternate between the 5W20 & 5W30 dino & syn for summer & winter oils, depending on what I have in my stash and how I arrange them for their intended use.
